Snickerdoodle Crazy Cake

The flavors of snickerdoodle are cinnamon and sugar which is such a great pairing. Did you know they are called snickerdoodles from the German word Schneckennudeln, which means snail dumpling? I have no idea how they made that connection to a cookie but it’s fun to know the history.

Crazy Cakes which are also called Depression Cakes started during World War II since things like eggs, milk and butter were hard to come by.
